[plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_linkcat_list

This plugin generates a listing of hyperlinked link category names with an optional display of the number of links assigned to that category.

The primary usage of this would be to use the listing as a table of contents to filter a link listing.

This plugin can work in conjunction with mem_glinklist or tfu_linklog (with one small mod).

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_linkcat_list

Thanks for the plugin, its just what I needed.

One thing though when I set linktosection=“links” I get this where the section should be in the url:

%EF%BF%BDlinks%EF%BF%BD

looking at the status bar when I hover over one of the links shows this where the section /links/ should be:
/?links?/

Any ideas?

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_linkcat_list

What are your category names? Is there a URL I can see?

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_linkcat_list

The site I am working on is on my local machine at the moment but one of my category names is:

EU Enlargement

so when I roll over it the status bar shows:

http://cepa/main/?links?/?c=EU+Enlargement

But when I click on the link this is the url in the address bar:

http://cepa/main/%EF%BF%BDlinks%EF%BF%BD/?c=EU+Enlargement

Also, I have sub-categories a couple levels deep. Will this plugin allow the listing of only certain levels or of just the top level?

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_linkcat_list

Whats happening seems weird. Seems like there are some character encoding issues going on. But I’m not even urlencoding the linktosection so I don’t know where that would be coming from. Have you tried on a fresh install? Are you using the new pretty section names?

And no, the plugin only lists categories at one level.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_linkcat_list

It’s not really working for me… is this plug-in complatible with TXP 4.0?

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_linkcat_list

I can’t get it to work right either. If the list of categories is in a side column, then what tag do you put in the main content area that will make the link list change based on the category a visitor wants to filter? here is a link to what i’m working on: http://snapnashville.org/resources

my side column has the following:
<code><txp:rss_linkcat_list linktosection=“resources” /></txp:if_section></code>

and the main content area has:
<code><txp:linklist /></code>

What I would really love is to output a list similar to the Link Archives list on wilshireone.com — but instead of listing by date, list by category… Then use rss_linkcat_list to make it easy for visitors to filter — in case the number of categories and links is long.

thanks,
stacey

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_linkcat_list

The plugin is not meant to work with txp:linklist.

Its detailed in the documentation and in my original post above.

This plugin can work in conjunction with mem_glinklist or tfu_linklog (with one small mod).

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_linkcat_list

Nice plug-in.

Could it be possible to add support for category titles?

Thanks!

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_linkcat_list

BTW, how can I make this to work? :D

I’m using mem_glinklist.
I mean:
if I’m in the section frontpage (/links/) I want to show the full link list.
But if I click in a category filter (/links/?c=category), I want to show the filtered link list.

How can I achieve that?
